"
was extremely helpful, responsive and professional at every stage of this project. I had solicited multiple bids from various contractors," and
's was the most reasonable and provided the best overall value. He did a thorough assessment of my needs and recommended multiple options. He and his partner were very efficient and thorough in cleaning up my old grass and debris and installing new sod etc. He was also flexible when a couple of my ideas changed as the project was progressing. I highly recommend him and his company!

is fast, thorough, friendly, and only cuts when the lawn needs it (i.e. doesn't create a payday when the lawn doesn't grow).

How to Get Rid of Springtails

One of the most effective ways to control springtails is to dry out the infested area. Springtails require a high-moisture environment to breed and thrive, living mostly off of algaes that grow in moist conditions. They will either leave the infested area or die out. If there is an infestation that cannot be controlled by drying out the infested area, use an appropriately labeled insecticide with a residual time These will typically be a liquid concentrate form, a wet-able powder form, or a dust product.  DO NOT APPLY UNTIL AREAS ARE DRY.  If area will not dry naturally, use Corn Starch to soak-up any lingering moisture and otherwise 'steer' any rain water or irrigation away from area.

 

Also, if there is a noticed springtail infestation around the perimeter of the structure, use the insecticide to do a barrier treatment and apply corn starch to reduce or eliminate moisture. Caulk and seal all cracks and crevices and inspect potted plants before they are brought into the house.

I would talk to your local lawn and garden supply store (or mill and feed) - NOT a box store or hardware store. There are also selective grass control chemicals. YOu can research this by Googling using search string      "Tall Fescue Control" - there are lots of articles by the USDA and individual state cooperative extension services.

There is a treatment called chlorsulfuron TFC (Tall Fescue Control) that will do this - it worked for me in western New York, but took 3 years to finish out all the tall fescue. It may now be limited to use by commercial applicators - pretty potent stuff. Can yellow bluegrass or make it phytosensitive, but our looked OK during treatment because the TFC was applied in the fall for best results, and our lawn was dormant till spring anyway.

Tall fescue can also be controlled by real short mowing, but only in areas where the bluegrass is dominant and really thrives so will eventually crowd out the trimmed fescue, but you may be too far north for that.

The folks at

were quick at responding to our inquiry and stopped by for the initial consultation appointment shortly thereafter.

Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
up a sketch of the project for me to take to the City to acquire the proper permits and such. The approach to groundbreaking was super smooth and, in the end, our project included the following:
- Removal of previous backyard patio
- Regrading back and side yards - Plant, shrub, and small tree removal - Installation of approximately 110' of six foot tall privacy fencing with two gates around the perimeter, custom fit to the contours of the yard - Installation of a 12x18 paver patio, small retaining wall, and appropriate paver steps - Installation of a 3x17 raised paver planting bed - Mushroom compost top soil, grass seeding, and transplanting
Implementing the project plan went better than expected given the misfortune of all the horrible, rainy weather this spring, but the folks at
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
made it happen. They seemed to have no issue dealing with the congestion of the Mexican War Streets and, in fact, we heard nothing but praises from the neighbors for their tidiness and unobtrusive approach.

was quick to call or email pictures when we needed to make a decision and weren't at the house.

was also really great at explaining the plan for the day and any issues he foresaw or experienced the previous day. We even left town on a scheduled trip towards the end of the project and had no issues dealing with them remotely. Seriously, the folks at
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
are timely, professional, and a pleasure to work with.
It's been about two months since the project has been completed and we love the results. So many people in the neighborhood have complimented the work, especially the raised paver planting bed. we've even had a local contractor in the neighborhood tell us how impressed he was with the quality and work ethic of the folks at
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
. I think that speaks volumes and we've had no problem recommending them to others.
How did their estimate compare to the cost of the end result you ask? It was spot on! All additional costs can be attributed to us adding another gate, making the planter bed taller, etc.
Thanks

Awesome people, mediocre work. They poured a concrete slab for me and the finishing touches are so rough it will cut your feel. The slabs are so uneven they will twist your ankle if you step wrong. I had to place a large outdoor rug over it to cover up the fact that it appears a worker stepped in the wet cement. I am currently looking for someone to dig it up and redo the entire thing. Not worth the frustration. We called to complain. They said they would be back the next day. They have never shown up.

Despite numerous requests, I was not given a copy of the plans or work order. I was not given any input in the plant selection. The finished product was nice. The maintenance became a nightmare. Other than cutting and edging, it was a constant fight to get the other maintenance done. Found out that the weed
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was not out down in the backyard before the rock was put down (I'm sure I paid for it). Had to come back and move rocks and put the weed
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
down. Trimming and weeding not done. Failed to cut the grass week before I terminated them with no explanation. Final straw was receding a bill the beginning of
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
for services supposedly performed I. February. Still waiting for a copy of the work order - requested so I would know what plants had been used so I could replace some of them. No response. Shoddy work, no work ethic, poor business practices.

The original plan for the patio was expanded (by me) during the process. They had no problem adjusting their approach and quickly developed a strategy to complete it. The team worked VERY hard, almost non-stop throughout the entire process. They were meticulous and cleaned up after themselves. Mahesh was extremely communicative during the entire process. The stonework is beautiful, and my backyard is absolutely lovely. I am so excited!

Two men worked for 2 hours to clear a large portion of the overgrown weeds in our yard. I was at work, so my wife spoke with them. They were approximately 30 minutes earlier than expected, but called ahead as we requested. They were very friendly, polite, professional. They clarified what she wanted done, then went straight to work. The areas she asked them to focus on were cleared to the ground, exactly as she requested. The task of clearing a few trees from our neighbor's yard that were entangled in our fence was much more difficult than we expected. They worked very hard to get not those but 2 of the 3 major areas completely cleared and most of the 3rd, as well. This included working near my wife's grape vines without damaging them. They gave her an estimated time it would take to complete the rest and offered to continue then or schedule another day, whichever she preferred. My wife generally does not like dealing with people she doesn't know, but when I got home she was very happy with the experience and had nothing but good things to say about the men who did the work. We called Bill to tell him how happy she was and to make arrangements for them to return to do more work for us.

The work was beautifully done. The estimate and invoice were right what they quoted. I appreciate the quality job that the workers did on our property. The job was done later than planned because of frequent rains, but well worth it.

The work was promptly scheduled and promptly completed.
I wish I had known that hauling off the debris was not included.
I wish I had been quoted a price for hauling at the time I scheduled.
I have selected "No" to the question "Would you use this provider in the future,
but I might change that if hauling prices were discussed with the provider and were found to be reasonable.

They even showed up early. They were the best group of guys. They explained everything to me. They DIDN'T try to sell me anything I didn't need. No MISC charges were added to my bill. They were quick to do there work and be on their way. They were so nice and sweet, I felt totally comfortable with them.
I intend to use them for helping my with my landscaping. When I get extra money put back.
A+ hands down!!
